Hi! Am trying to find a door handle for my 1976 Skamper (Not Scamp, an entirely different brand).  I have checked with RV dealers, and several junk motor homes.  All the handle/lock inserts are larger.  The opening is 2 1/2" wide, and 3" high.  Any idea qwhere to locate one?  This is the lever handle, not knob style as in a house.  No RV junk yards around here.  This was missing when I purchased the trailer.
